Lynmar Russian River Valley Pinot Noir - 2006(W-2058)

Lynmar Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Tasting Note

The color this year is immediately bright and youthful with an attractive violet hue and a translucence that boldly declares this is not ano... (more...)ther “over-extracted” Syrah-like Pinot Noir. Aromas begin with an assortment of wonderfully forward red fruits such as pie cherry, strawberry, and cranberry. These upfront fruit characters are accented by complexing notes of baking spice, deeper dark fruits, and orange blossom. There is also a subtle earthiness here that evokes the local coastal forests and the breezes coming in from Pacific….giving this wine a heightened sense of place. On the palate cleansing, “zippy” acidity results in a taut, yet balanced, structure with flavors that truly linger and draw you back. Always enjoyable upon release, this wine will only get better through fall of 2009, and should continue to reward cellaring through 2012.

A little spice on the nose, a bit of plum and a slight smokiness.

I sometimes find RRV Pinot Noir to be a little too jammy and flabby for me but as Alyssa points out, this is bing cherry with bright acidity across the board. Nice medium finish. A nice wine--$40 seems just slightly steep.
